First up is the masculine card. It was created for the CASology challenge combined with the sketch challenge at Stamp Ink Paper. The theme at CASology was "Aquatic". And here is the sketch at SIP . . .
I used supplies from a Simon Says Stamp kit to create this card.
My card base is gray, and I used a gray print as a base to adhere all the pattern papers. A Simon Says Stamp stitched die was used to create the circle.
Next up is a card created that is a combination of the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and a photo inspiration at StampNation, my favorite craft space. Here is the sketch . . .
I actually created two cards, a slight variation that you'll see between one and the other . . .
The pattern paper on this one does all of the talking. It's from a Studio Calico kit, and when I saw it I new I wanted it to be the focal point on a card. Love the bright, cheerful colors.
Instead of a banner, I used a border of pink paper which I embellished with a little Wink of Stella.
And on this second card, you can see that border as changed up a bit.
I've got some creations in the works to post in the coming days, and I hope you had some time over the weekend to create.
